Abstract

Higher Education Institutions (HEI) are facing a potential challenge at questioning the means and method as to how education is delivered and learning is credited. The leading agent for this change is online learning and transfer of credit for potential employment. The aim of this paper is to look into these questions by raising the questions locally and getting the response at RK University, Rajkot, India. The responses present an answer on how fast the University is growing, how an educational institution able to adapt to this change by incorporating necessary credit to the transcript, are students ready to pay extra for this, is it noticed by the potential employer as essential skill acquired, and is HEI working in the right direction? This study compares questions with the global trend and proposes a line of action. It seems that as the students are increasingly being hooked to social media, the presence is getting reflected in their public profile enhancing the perception of stated skill. The true reflection of this will be seen after few years, especially if it solves more problems than those created in society. There is no doubt that it is building a new social association, which could never be thought to be formed earlier and now it is getting commented. This accumulation of data helps us to develop new knowledge colonies for all of us. The most detrimental factor in all these is the cult of evaluation of a fake credential. It is considered that the wisdom will prevail even above truth.
